I have an HSA. W-2 box 12a is code W. My employer cuts the check for my contribution but the contribution actually comes from my compensation. How do I make TurboTax realize that the contribution is by me, thereby not treating this as taxable?
I’ve spoken with an accountant friend that tells me there is a form that this information is supposed to flow to and be filled out properly (“put here employee or employer contributions”) but I can’t seem to find where I can distinguish between the two in TurboTax. TurboTax states “Code W represents employer payments to your plan” and treats it as taxable income. Any guidance would be much appreciated.
